Frequently Asked Questions
The appointments may be in person, by phone or via Zoom. Phone and Zoom appointments will be scheduled according our availability. The in-person appointments will be either at the Kansas City office. If your appointment is a phone appointment, you must call our office 5 minutes before the appointment time. If your appointment is via Zoom, you must call prior to the appointment to give us your name and email. The attorney will initiate the video-call and send you a link to connect via email. All appointments must be pre-paid using a credit card. You may schedule your appointment using our website or you may call our office and our assistant will help you schedule it.
The applicant or potential immigrant must be present during the consultation, either in person or by phone. If the applicant or potential immigrant is not in the United States the consultation may not happen in person and a phone appointment will have to be scheduled. We prefer that the petitioner is also present when the case is a family immigration petition.
No other individuals, such as children will be permitted to attend an in-person consultation. Please do not discuss matters not related to your case as they will not be answered and will only take up time from your consultation.
If you must bring children to the office, you must also bring a babysitter to stay with the children while you go into the attorney’s office. If there is no one to watch your children the appointment will be cancelled.
Telephone, Zoom or in-person appointments, are also expected to begin as scheduled. For telephone appointments you must call the office 10 minutes before the scheduled consultation and it is your responsibility to initiate the call. If the consultation will be conducted via Zoom, you must call our office 10 minutes before the scheduled time to provide your email to our receptionist.
Existing or potential clients calling or arriving more than 10 minutes late, REGARDLESS OF THE REASON, are considered to have missed their appointment and will be asked to reschedule. If the consultation begins late due to the client’s responsibility, the consultation will end at the scheduled ending time regardless of not having the entire 30 minutes consultation time. We have appointments scheduled every 30 minutes and we will respect everyone’s appointments.
No refunds will be given once the consultation begins. We cannot guarantee that the attorney will take your case and the consultation fee will not be reimbursed.

If we cannot give you a legal opinion on the same day of your consultation, we will have an answer for you within one week of your scheduled appointment.
The cost for all consultations is $200 USD. Virtual consultations are payable at the time of the scheduling of the appointment.
